Response from Maureen Sexton re Goodbye Poets Corner


I'm devastated that Poet's Corner is ending! Even though I haven't been there for a long time (I haven't been to any poetry reading events for a long time for personal reasons), it is the one venue where I felt the most comfortable, and I know many other poets feel the same. Busking is not for everyone, definitely not for me. I don't feel comfortable in pubs and they're too noisy. A lot of poets will have nowhere to go now. I don't like to go out at night much, and I know a lot of other poets feel the same. WOW's no good to me because of the stairs and because it's on at night. I'm not speaking just for myself. I think this is one of the biggest losses the poetry community could face. I applaud Frances for the work and time she has put into Poet's Corner and thank her sincerely. Frances has been such a driving force for WA poetry, for the work she put in to WA Poets Inc, the WA Spring Poetry Festival and Poets' Corner. Thank you so much Frances.
